TK;I genuinely want to help Conservapedia. I joined to do just that. I can't understand what you are getting at. Seriously. I hoped (nothing more) that you would consider (nothing more) changing a computer-generated picture that is under copyright. If you had said no, that would have been that. If I did the wrong thing by using your talk page instead of this forum then it was a mistake of ignorance, of unfamiliarity with the site.

And it seems I wiped a talk page. Can you tell me what it was. What it said.I genuinely cannot remember doing it. I would not do it deliberately. Until today I have been given consideration and advice from others. I regret that I have been misunderstood on this occasion.

I am asking for help here. AlanE 05:32, 18 May 2007 (EDT)

  • You have been given consideration. You just chose to invent my intent, is all. Happens lots of times. This is the Internet. Use the help to learn how to upload a picture, and select one of general interest of Eleanor. It's pretty self-explanatory, the link is to the left, "Upload File". You have to save it to your own computer first, then upload from it. Look at other pages with pictures, in the edit mode, and copy over the code. Just remove the code after image, and replace with the name of your pic. My point wasn't to upbraid you, but to caution you from making such statements as "I didn't" before you check.  ;-) User's discussion pages are for more non-article postings. You asking questions there, about something specific like this particular article, is better done here. When on that page, I cannot easily look at this one, eh? --Sysop-TK /MyTalk 06:39, 18 May 2007 (EDT)

I cannot understand why this discussion page has the stub notice (or whatever it is called) on it. Nor can I understand why the "of" in "Eleanor of Aquitaine has to have a capital. In no other organ of media, be it book or newspaper or any reputable website, does the defining preposition or article have a capital; from Winnie the Pooh to Joan of Arc, to Lord of the Rings, every style manual of every publication has it uncapitalized (if that's a word). So I am politely asking that the edit be reverted. (I don't dare do it myself.) I would also like to know why the photo of Eleanor's effigy was considered silly (I have 8 illustrations included with chapters on Eleanor and her family in books in this room and they are ALL of her effigy in one form or another. I would write this in my user discussion page but it would not be seen. Perhaps someone in authority could contact me there. AlanE 03:46, 3 June 2007 (EDT)

I have changed the capitalisation. I don't believe the photo of Eleanor's effigy was considered silly but rather it infringed copyright. If you can submit a photo that you took yourself or can find one in the public domain then please ask for it to be uploaded. MadMin 04:28, 3 June 2007 (EDT)

Thank you MadMin. I never even wanted a picture. I don't believe in illustrations that are not true representations of the subject. Bur TK put one on that WAS under copyright so I was given approval to change it. I chose an effigy photo as being more likely than most to be in the public domain. I was wrong. But before that was realised, Aschlafly had blocked me for "silly" picture and (I assume) a review of my contributions for any other "silliness". I was back a few days later, however.....
